I love the idea, can't wait to see it progress. I think a large school of angel fish in this would look amazing.
not the first time it's happened, but I am planning on getting white koi angels
. not koi fish
so we're both on the same page re: school of angels
love this, but as hubby pointed out...the wire in the back is annoying and draws attention. thought about a background? spray paint cardboard or something?
other than mosses idk a carpet plant that would grow in low light though
agree re: the light cable, but that's cuz my timer isn't here yet. should arrive today for me to finalize the lighting...going to either tape or clip the cable so it runs along the back right corner so it's out of sight. I am trying to avoid a background because I like the white/light minimalistic look of it all right now.
while my lights are just 2x 32w T8's, it seems a lot bright because of 1) the white walls, 2) light colored sand, both of which serve as light reflectors. putting up a background is going to block off a lot of bounced lighting.
i'm leaning towards no carpet at all now and transplanting all of my lotus plants from my 56G over. I might plant some 'green' plants in the black ecco-complete area though. still mulling that over.
my guy with white koi angels is OOS right now, so i'll probably end up getting marbled koi from him - these guys. gonna get 7 overall, but am probably going to get them from 2 different sources to mix bloodlines.
